Thanksgiving break could not have gotten here soon enough! Between field trips, Thanksgiving parties and just the kids being excited because any holiday is right around the corner I was ready for some down time! Jeff and I have lots to be thankful for and we can wait to spend the day with both of our families together! It is nice his parents come over since they live about an hour and half away to spend Thanksgiving at my parents house. It makes it easier so we don't have to split the day into two different places!
But we can not wait till tonight where we find out if we are going to have a niece or nephew at my sister's gender reveal party! She has known since Monday and she will absolutely not tell us. She wants to be fair to both sides of the family so everyone can find out at once but it its absolutely killing my mom and myself. I have been to work on a picture frame for her to turn into a chalkboard so we can survey what everyone guesses it will be. But I will be back in the near future to let everyone know because I'm sure I will be hitting up the stores in no times to get my little niece/nephew all the cute little things a baby needs.
Also other exciting news but nothing to jump through the roof about is Jeff and I put an offer on a house last week and it was accepted. Now we just have to wait since it is a short sale to see what the bank says. The bank could come back and accept our offer or the bank could come back and counter so who knows what the situation may be, so we are not getting to overly excited but I still am because the house is awesome. It is definitely a house we can grow into when we have kids in the future so say your prayers it works out. But Jeff continues to let me know that it may not work out so don't get my hopes up because we just have no idea how long the bank will take and what the bank will say.
Here is what the front look likes...
I am actually taking Jeff this morning to go see it in person for the first time. It actually is quite a funny story how this whole situation went down. I was just browsing on the computer how I normally do for houses and I came across a house that just had a major drop in price and I was like no way it is a huge and looks really nice in the picture could this be true? Right in the area we have been looking it was impossible. So I handed the iPad over to Jeff and I said take a look. He was taken back as well and goes now this is the kind of deal I have been looking for. He said call our real estate agent and go look at it tomorrow. Jeff works till 6 at night so he was not going to be able to make it with me. But since I am the one that has all the opinions he knew he could trust what I thought. He told me that if it really looked like it did on the computer and it was in good condition to walk out and put an offer on it. I was kind of nervous to make sure a big decision without him there with me but I went last week to look at the house and was completely taken back. Everything was in great condition with everything we wanted minus wood floors but those can come down the road. I called Jeff and said we would be silly to pass it up so he talked to our real estate agent on the phone and we signed a contract. As I am walking out of the house to sign a contract there is another family walking into the house to see it. I am out in the driveway signing the contract and we were told the people were making an offer as well. I mean Jeff and I both knew that this house was not going to stay on the market very long it was way to nice for the price they were asking. So fast forward to two days later we get a call and they accepted our offer over the other peoples, we were thrilled!! So now we just have to wait for the bank, which who knows how long they will take could be a month or a couple and then they could counter us way higher than we offered it is just all up in the air. So say a little prayer it all works out because I am pretty much over looking for a house that I like and move in ready, that is in our price range, in the area we want!
So needless to say I am going this morning to take Jeff to see it. I am sure he is going to love it!
I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving with friends and family. Lots to be thankful for!
